Providing new data feeds to ABRP


Question

Here in Australia we have been slow on the takeup of EVs, but now there are several networks popping up.  However apart from the Tesla superchargers, none of them appear in ABRP.

I've added a couple of stations near me to OpenChargeMap, but I'd like to contact the networks that operate them, to ask them to make their location information available in a format that is useful to OCM and ABRP.

A couple of questions:

1) What is easier for ABRP?  For the data to be provided to OCM (and then ABRP gets it from there) or to be provided to ABRP directly? 

2) What do I need to tell these organisations?  What formats etc?  (Bearing in mind I'm as much a stranger to these organisations as I am to ABRP - I can't get the data myself or help test.) 

The organisations (all in Australia) are:
- Queensland Electric Super Highway - a government funded and operated network of 18 DC fast chargers (50 kW) in Queensland.
- NRMA Electric Vehicle network - a state motoring organisation which is funding and operating over 40 DC fast chargers (50 kW) in New South Wales (12 built so far)
- Chargefox - a charge network operator which, as well as already operating many AC and 50kW DC chargers, is building a network of 22 ultra-rapid (350 kW) charging sites across the country (3 built so far)
- Evie Networks - a charge network operator which hasn't built anything yet, but are also planning ultra-rapid (350 kW) charging sites across the country

@chuq The Dan Murphy's charger at Batemans Bay seems to be operational now - there's a successful check-in on Plugshare and it is in the Chargefox app now (so probably should be listed on the Chargefox network rather than None.

@Bo (ABRP) - is it possible to tweak the import a bit?  At the moment you import rows with column A = "Operational" - could you make it and rows with either "Operational" or "1 Operational"?  

The reason being I plan to use labels starting with numbers so when I sort that column it puts them in lifecycle order e.g. "1 Operational", "2 Construction", "3 Confirmed", "4 Planned", "5 Speculative" etc.  and not just alphabetically.  Those may not be the exact categories but "1 Operational" will definitely be the first!

I have found a number of AC chargers missing in Western Australia. How accurate is the AC data? Australia does not have a good DC charging network so the route planner needs to utilise AC chargers otherwise many destinations  cannot be reached. 

Foe example from Perth to Esperence, PlugShare has a 3 phase charger at the Green Haven Caravan Park but ABRP does not utilise this charger so indicates it's impossible to get to Esperence. .

@chuq I made a copy of your sheet for testing, and imported into my Google My Maps, and got this:

I just did that for fun (I don't even live in Australia lol), but you can make a map very quickly like that. I have no idea if it will update  as the sheet is updated tho. It might or might not. Unclear to me from documentation.

This has been raised and is being worked on by ABRP peeps here 🙂
